There’s an educational crisis in Chicago’s Latino community. Experts say in this tough economy, too many college students are dropping out to help their families survive.
But a one-of-a-kind effort hopes to reverse the trend.

La Casa is a student housing facility with comprehensive tutoring services and an on-site resource center.
La Casa is the brainchild of the Resurrection Project, a dynamic non-profit organization, also based in Pilsen, developing healthy communities through economic revitalization, affordable housing, civic engagement and better education for students.
